Space Is the Place

Directed by John Coney
With Sun Ra, Barbara Deloney, Raymond Johnson
1974, 85min, 35mm

 

The movie version of Sun Ra’s concept album features the legendary avant-garde jazz musician and mystic in his only fictional film appearance. Rejecting a linear plot in favor of a mélange of interplanetary travel, sharp social commentary, goofy pseudo-Blaxploitation stylistics, and thrilling concert performance, this kaleidoscopic, hugely entertaining adventure is a wild ride.

 
Afronauts

Directed by Frances Bodomo
With Diandra Forrest, Yolonda Ross, Hoji Fortuna
2014, 14min, DCP

 

This beguiling monochrome short tracks the Zambia Space Academy’s attempts to beat America to the moon.
